    This really isn't going to come as a surprise, in light of his desire to ban "AR-14s" and other uninformed statements, but it is now official, if it wasn't previously. This was emailed to me by SCI:


    Joe Biden Voices Support for Banning the Import of Hunting Trophies

    This past weekend, former Vice President Joe Biden hosted a virtual town hall in Illinois while campaigning for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. During the event he went on record as being opposed to the importation of animals hunted legally outside the United States. Such a ban is intended solely to stop outdoorsmen and women from hunting abroad, a longtime goal of the uninformed anti-hunting groups to whom Joe Biden is politically pandering.

    Similar to legislation like the federal CECIL Act or the Iconic African Species Protection Act in California that threaten hunters ’rights, an import ban would not only fail to increase protections on wildlife species in Africa and elsewhere, it would actively impede scientifically-backed conservation strategies managed by range states and funded primarily by hunting dollars spent in range countries.

    Someone like Pete Fick, who is a wildlife guide in Zimbabwe’s Bubye Wildlife Conservancy, would have a lot to teach the former Vice President. Fick and conservationists like him are adamant that “killing some animals so the rest of them can live is an absolute necessity out here.” By allowing hunting inside the conservancy, Bubye has been able to increase their resources on hand to push back against efforts by those looking to develop wildlife habitat into agricultural spaces, as well as hire more full-time anti-poaching patrols inside the area. In fact, the park management authorities cover 80% of the Conservancy’s $2.5 million annual maintenance costs with hunting dollars.

    Safari Club International (SCI) CEO W. Laird Hamberlin responded to Joe Biden’s statement, saying “If Joe Biden truly cared about international wildlife, he would spend less time falsely claiming he was a sponsor of the Endangered Species Act and more time studying the abundance of evidence from the scientific community that shows hunting is a critical component of many countries’ successful wildlife conservation programs. Many of the people who oppose our mission at SCI are quick to accost others for not believing in science when it comes to climate change, yet seem to forget that same talking point when confronted with science that supports conservation through sustainable use.

    Maybe Joe thinks no one is paying attention because of our national crisis…” Hamberlin continued “but rest assured that SCI is watching and ready as ever to fight for our people’s right to hunt. While we may be practicing social distancing, I’d still like to invite the former Vice President’s campaign to engage with us here at Safari Club International so that we can work together to make the world a better place for humans and wildlife to healthily coexist.

    Having watched him over the course of the last few months, it's doubtful he has enough working brain cells to engage anyone in a coherent conversation. He has literally been chosen as the sacrificial lamb for the next election.

    Joe Biden is a demented , retarded Bastard ... A clown who has an unsavory fondness for touching little children. The fact that he is planning on running as a Democratic Presidential Candidate is a disgrace , in and of itself . I would very strongly question the sanity of a “ man “ whose solution to contending with a home invader is to “ Fire off a shot gun twice in to the air “ .

    Well, that's nothing new from an idiot who doesn't a thing about guns and hunting. I am rather surprised he had a lucid moment ( if in fact it was) in which to make that assinine statement. Not to worry. I think old Joe's days are numbered.

    It will come out more and more that Biden is suffering from senility. I notice they all hate us foreign hunters. Doesn't surprise me. My neighbor who owns a lot of land says he doesn't care if they outlaw hunting. He would hunt anyway and be more game for him.

    My theory on the presidential campaign: Communist Bernie is out. They run senile old Joe who gets the nomination. He appoints Hillary as vp. He soon has a "mental catastrophy" and is declared unfit and is cast off. Hillary then brings in Mikey Bumbug and all his money and they try to buy the election---again.

    Don't bet on it. Look what they've been doing for the last four years by trying to impeach Trump, fielding all the anti hunting lunacy, covering up Hillary's and the Biden's overseas traitorous activities, Iran nuclear deal, ad nauseam.

    I've heard rumors to the effect of nominating Stacey Abrams as his VP. Stupid socialist woman who tried to run for governor here in GA, lost to the dreaded Conservative White Man, and threw a stink about how the election was stolen from her, they didn't count "minority" ballots, etc etc. Refused to concede the results and as far as I know still thinks she got cheated.

    The level of up that the Dems have f&#*$d is strong in schadenfreude. This feels like the political equivalent of trying to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and ending up setting your house on fire.

    I saw the broadcast, and he was asked point blank would he ban the importation of trophy hunted animals...he answered yes...and then spoke for approximately 2 minutes in a complete incoherent manner regarding climate change, a bill passed in Delaware, and how he can fix all it. It was like a kid who came to class on the last the day and was called upon and rambled on. It was really sad.

    And yet a huge amount of Hunters will vote for Biden because they think he is better. You can’t fix stupid!

    I’m sure at some point a ban will be put in place, by who, I have no idea but it will happen in my lifetime sadly.

    If you notice his eyes, it appears he has dementia or something similar. He has those geriatric eyes he didn’t have a while back. Not trying to be funny but serious about this. He really has some serious mental difficulties.

    This is a great thread. I had not thought of this senile old bastard just being a front for his lady VP. The special Tucker Carlson ran on Biden showed an aged and manipulated old man, about half aware of his surroundings. My favorite quote by old Quid Pro Joe is "hi, I'm Joe Biden, and I'm running for the democratic seat for the senate".....said three weeks ago. He had forgotten what state he was in (Vermont), and what office he was running for. ...........FWB

    Biden's miscues and screw ups are the reasons I love campaign season. I dearly love watching candidates screw up and give us verbal gold! Truth be told, I don't put to much stock in what ANY candidates say on the trail. I actually try to do some research and see their records and prior positions.

    Multiple stops on the campaign trail give candidates ample opportunity to explain their positions and state their plans for the future. I consider it more than just entertainment. It is the way most Americans evaluate the candidates. When I watch Creepy Joe fondling a teenager, or stating he will ban overseas trophy hunting, I listen. I consider that when voting. Anyone can forget their location: but to forget that you're running for President? That is serious. ...Watch the Tucker Tape.....afterward, it you feel that this man is mentally intact, then dig into his record......that will tell you what he used to be like. I want real time data..........FWB
